Description

Premium Chardonnay made from prized blocks of low yielding clone 95, a superior clone originating from the Côte d’Or, France. You will find a pronounced nose with pineapple, white grapefruit, and baked apple. More citrus to follow on the palate accompanied by flavors of honeycomb, hazelnut, and biscotti. The finish is long with a rich buttery mouthfeel.

Source: Clone 95 from Duncan Vineyard on the Naramata Bench.

Winemaking: The grapes are hand harvested and whole bunch pressed, then fermented and aged in French oak barrels for 10 months, using a combination of standard barrels and puncheons. 25% goes into new oak & partial malolactic fermentation occurs.

Residual Sugar: 1.6 g/L
